International Office lends a hand for Charity In collaboration with the philanthropic organisation, International Charity Society, established in 1998 by Dame Irina Malikova, the University's International Office recently hosted relatives of the "Kursk" tragedy. The families were welcomed on campus by the Director of the International Office, Mr Leslie Agius.

The morning's programme included off-campus water sports activities -  jetbike rides, windsurfing, dinghy sailing and scuba diving at Mellieha sponsored by AcquaVenture. Then back to campus for lunch at the Campus Bistro hosted by Corinthia Caterers. A campus tour with a visit to the Library in the afternoon organised by the University Students' Council (KSU) rounded up a very enjoyable day. Other sponsors included Paramount Garage and P. Cutajar Co. Ltd. The relatives arrived in Malta at the end of October for a two week stay hosted by Maltese families.
